  • Letter — request for opt-out from workers always working more than 48 hours a week

Dear [insert name of worker]

As you may be aware, the Working Time Regulations 1998 impose a limit on your working time. The precise calculation of the limit is complicated but, in broad terms, your average working time is limited to an average of 48 hours a week. However, you may 'opt out' of the limit if you wish to.

You are normally going to work more than 48 hours a week and, unless you agree to 'opt out' from the limit, we would need to restrict your hours to the maximum permitted by the Working Time Regulations 1998.

We are therefore inviting you to 'opt out'
